Simplifying/managing how I offer RSS? (7 posts)

    Hi,
    Is there a good plugin for managing the RSS links on the side? The problem is that some of my readers are technically challenged, and having a screen full of code fill their browser window confuses them, and it doesnt seem like all browsers automatically prompt you to select an RSS Reader. Can anyone suggest a good plugin which (in whatever way) makes the RSS subscription process easier? I like how, for example, http://www.coolhunting.com handles it, with dropdowns directly to the various readers (they're on MovableType though so I cant ask for their plugin ;) ), something like that would be awesome.

    thanks in advance for any help,

    -z

    Why not create a Page explaining RSS with links to RSS readers or what to do with that text that loads in their browser windows?

    I had considered that Dr Mike, but ideally I would like a solution that enables them to implement RSS with minimal effort. If thats not available I'll go with the explanatory page option.

    I went to that site but I don't see anything like you are talking about.

    Moshu - upper left corner of the site. Click on "Get CH by Email or RSS".

    Kinda nifty, really.

    Why not do a hover:block on a div tag to expose a list of subscribe options... like on syndicatedmethods.com .
